Political observers of the State Islamic University ( UIN ) Jakarta , Bachtiar Effendi , deplored the tendency of Islamic -based parties that often form a coalition with the National Party. According to him , it shows the Islamic parties are not confident with the strength they have .
" It’s ironic , that Islamic Islamic party feel important , but not confident . Gives the support of other parties . Already joined the PPP now Gerindra , MCC would join Golkar , PKB want to move closer to the PDI - P , for what ? " Bachtiar said in a discussion titled ’ Reading Direction Political Islam ’ in Jakarta , Saturday ( 04/19/2014 ) .
Bachtiar highlight that CLA has a pretty high voice in legislative elections yesterday . Based on a quick count pileg from various institutions , CLA estimated sound gets about 9 percent , while most other major Islamic political parties get only about 6 percent .
" I do not know why Muhaimin Iskandar ( PKB Chairman ) no PD . Why did not he spearheaded a coalition of Islamic parties . Fact PKB could propose that a presidential candidate should koalisi.Tidak Muhaimin , can be Rhoma Mahfud or anyone else , " he said .
In fact, continued Bachtiar , later formed a coalition which does not have to always win . If you lose too , according coalition of Islamic political parties could still get many advantages . Indonesia’s political system allows it .
" Politics in Indonesia is not winner takes all system , although it can definitely lose something . Coalition Why is not it? If the coalition lost the election to a coalition again with the win . Not a problem , " he said .
If unsure of himself and continues to rely on a coalition with the National Party , he was worrying the fate of the Islamic party will never change in the future .
